a fellow local, and that's chris christie, a governor who if you do what i do and still take your family to the boardwalk on weekends and seaside, point pleasant, it's a very good chance you'll see the governor of your state with his family as his parents took them there, because it's special to us, and he was saying he can't speak for all the privately owned places like this, a lot of the jersey shore, a lot of the boardwalks are a private concern. but boy, he wants to come back. this is part of the beating heart, the economic engine of the state of new jersey on down through delaware, maryland, on up through new york and new england. it's hard to imagine the east coast without a beach. the east coast without the jersey shore. >> brian, you're absolutely right. thank you, great reporting. don't forget, you can see him tonight. >>> is there any way power companies can keep their six million customers living in the dark satisfied with their service? president obama spoke to our next guest yesterday from the situation room about how to eliminate any bureaucratic roadblocks that delay the p

. governor chris christie says the damage to the state's beaches is, quote, overwhelming. today, governor christie will tour the devastation with president obama. the republican governor who has campaigned steadily for mitt romney raised eyebrows by praising the president's response to this crisis. we'll take a look at the politics in play. but first, more importantly, we'll focus on the devastation, the damage along the jersey shore. michael holmes is in toms river. that's on the jersey shore. he joins us by phone. very hard to get a live shot out of there right now. michael, describe the jersey shore. what are you seeing? >> reporter: damage in barrier island. it's quite a sight, i can tell you. there's a mile-long queue of emergency vehicles, tractor trailers, four-wheel drive, heavy earth-moving equipment, buses loaded with rescue workers, fire truck, rescue truck, national guard is all here, all lined up on this side of the bridge waiting for the green light to head across and on to those barrier islands you've seen extraordinary pictures of. they're going to go over there, set up a

keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of new jersey, things are getting worse. they're not getting better. the president's got to keep part of his concentration on this. and he hasn't been doing that. there is no substitute for the president not concentrating on. >> should he now come to new york, the president? >> president hasn't been to new york. president hasn't been to breeze y point. president hasn't been to staten island. people in staten island feel abandoned. he hasn't been there. >> he's obviously been to new jersey with the governor. do you think he should now come directly to -- >> he has been to new jersey but he hasn't been to staten island. he hasn't been to breezy point. hasn't been to rockaway. these people lost 80 homes, they lost lives and we're still finding bodies there. i think the president has to devote some of his time to concentratin

[applause] charles: all rise judge andrew napolitano is here. they were posing questions to governor christie. somebody tried to sort of hit him like are you saying ignore environmental things, you know, that kind of stuff. you know common sense christie saying do the right thing, let's save lives and be smart and forget about all these rules. >> it is an interesting statement he made and an interesting juxtaposition you just showed. you have governor christie on the right of the political spectrum -- spectrum. you have the president on the left of the political spectrum, they are both saying forget the red tape, do what you need to do to save lives. which is probably what most people would do. the press conference, which i watched, was in front of government officials. they were applauding him when he sai
. >> if you want to know how close the coordination has been, listen to new jersey governor chris christie. >> i've been in touch with president obama this afternoon. the president called me at about 2:15 this afternoon. it was just the two of us on the phone. we had a good conversation. the president wanted to know if we had everything that we needed to be able to respond to the storm. i told him we did. we wanted to check on the level of cooperation with fema, i said it was excellent. he said if at any point over the next 48 hours, i was not getting from the federal government i should call him directly at the white house and had he was going to be there. and that i should just not worry about dealing with anybody else. just call him. >> president obama was quick to point out the response is part of the normal government operations. it's not a reflection of the current election climate. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our e
the election? >> the thing about chris christie, he's a guy who's known to speak his mind. a lot of times speaking his mind means he's telling someone off or yelling at them. when he says something, it has a ring of authenticity. you don't get the idea he's being very politic. if you're a governor, you need to tour the damaged parts of your state with someone who can help you. walking around with mitt romney would just be a photo op but allowing the president of the united states to tour the devastated areas of new jersey would allow the president to know where resources need to be placed. chris christie is being governor as president obama is being president in chief, not a campaigner. there's no margin for christie to play party politics. he needs to get the job done as governor because as steve says, his job will be judged by how he handle this is hurricane. >> steve, how do you think the romney camp views this, who does need this and some other margins between now and next tuesday? >> no, they're at cross-purposes here. christie is about -- right now he's imperative to appeal to blue
is getting good marks and governor chris christie, keeps bragging what a great job doing that. it can't hurt the president with that happening. maybe he gains a point on approval but it's way to early to know. in key places like ohio, i'm not sure it's going to have an effect. >> greta: and in terms of support to the state, those people are hurting and that is his job. >> he has his race of his own a year from now. new jersey happens in the odd year. corey booker the mayor of new york. >> now that he is chummy with the governor? >> i think politics -- i mean everything is political. i think you have a right, chris christie is doing what is the right for the state of new jersey. so is the president. but in the background of all that there are some ramifications. i'm not sure conservatives in this race are very happy with him right now. they may not forget it in the general election in new jersey. a year from now, there is going to be political ramifications. i'm not sure he is worried about that. >> is it possible for either candidate, president obama or governor romney to win right now witho
of these areas on the shore anyway at this point. >> very quickly, chris christie has been pretty scathing about the mayor of atlantic city, saying that he basically went against his instructions. what can you tell me about that and how much of a problem will that be for the mayor, if indeed people do get trapped and potentially lose their lives? >> reporter: well, we were talking to the mayor of atlantic city on air earlier, and i had asked him, i said look, 3:00, 4:00 in the afternoon, what do you do if you haven't left, because the roads have started to become overtopped and he said at that point, if you're not out, stay where you are, get to high ground. chris christie then took exception to some of his comments and i'm not sure the situation on the ground makes the mayor wrong. i agree there should have been a great emphasis on getting people out of town. most did. about 400 or 500 remain in shelters in atlantic city but the mayor's concern is that some people didn't go to shelters, they are just at home and there's no services to help them. unclear as to at what point the mayor should have
to report as well. no doubt about that. this evening, new jersey governor chris christie lifted evacuation orders in cape may and atlantic counties on the southern tip of the state. that's progress. as you'll see growing danger farther up the coast from broken gas lines. it has been that kind of day. danger, heart break, victory and setbacks everywhere sandy hit. the sound of progress. limited service once again. the power went out and the water came in. aboveground, more buses but still too many riders. >> it is amazing to see the faces of people get off the subways. they're thinking things are going fine and then they see this. this is just a mess. >> a mess that many simply choose to walk away from. tens of thousands walking mile to work over the city's bridges. all around the area, driving meant waiting to gas up. with tanks running empty and patience running low. >> this is the line. i follow the line. >> it is not just gas running low. >> we are over the next few days going to have to work out some procedures to make sure people can get food. >> as many as a million new yorkers may n
? after his photohelpop with chris christie, he boards fair force 1 and begins with a stump speech -- where? in green bay, wisconsin and then to las vegas. his final event is just getting underway in boulder, colreado. heel stay the night in ohio. with the horrifying images of sandy's devastation, contrasted with the president's constant pamdam paining, this is starting to look like, in my opinion, obama's katrina. we will have reaction from former new york city mayor rudy guiliani. but i want to update you on the other story that continues to change by the minute. fox news can confirm, on the night of the benghazi terror attack, the obama administration did not convene its top counter-terrorism resource, that being the counter-terrorism security group, which has the ability to coordinate all asset, all agencies to respond to a potential terror attack. forks news has confirmed that emails exist showing the key responders were ready to deploy but were upon called upon by the u.s. government. one official told cbs news tonight, the csg is the one group that is supposed to know what r
highway to get gasoline. governor chris christie says officials requested emergency supplies of gasoline and fuel from the federal government. there have been 92 reported deaths related to this storm in the united states. the department of energy says more than 4 million customers still have no power. nearly 2 million of those households are in the state of new jersey. utility workers are coming in from all over. exactly from 12 states. they are headed to new jersey to assist in repairs. the national guard is increasing its response to the storm. reinforcements were sent to new york and new jersey to double the recovery efforts. now, while people are picking up the pieces of their shattered lives, the presidential campaign is back in full swing. if you want to know where this election will be decided, just watch where the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt
a point of argument. the president goes in for a photo-op with chris christie and he's back on the campaign trail. he have gas stations shut down. we have looters breaking out. we have people dumpster diving. we have chaoses breaking out with the obama katrina emerging before our eyes -- he got his photo-op, he's on the campaign trail. joe and david, things are going to get worse by the weekend. i am on the ground here in new york and new jersey. it is getting really bad, really fast. david? >> well, the momentum was in mitt's favor before the hurricane hit. there was a chance it would cause a moratorium. i don't think it has. but even if it has, it will dissipate by the weekend. i hope it doesn't have any political effect at all. mitt will recapture the momentum. he was 4 points ahead in rasmussen's national poll, 6 in gallup likely polling. i think all the -- all the policy reasons to oust obama are present. he doesn't have an energized base. everybody says, the key to this is voter turnout, the republicans are energized like they have never been in my lifetime. therefore,
took a hard hit. many people in atlantic city chose not to evacuate and chris christie called out the mayor there for testimonying -- telling people it was okay to stay and not evacuate. chris christy said it was the wrong thing to do. if things are bad in new jersey he is prepared to sign a executive order to reschedule halloween for the kids of new jersey. >> we'll go to maria molina who is looking at the weather that has come and the weather in front ofulse. a major transformer blast. this picture said it all. check out the big apple left in the dark. in the bottom that is manhattan before and after the outrage. con ed said it could be a week before the repairs are made. maria? >> good morning, good to see you. impacts from sandy and the storm has weakened with maximum sustained winds at 90 miles per hour. and the center is 90 miles west of the philadelphia. the danger is not over. apart from the damage and flood water in new york city and down in new jersey, people will head out of doors and at some point today. there could be live wires and you can't see what is in the flood
rescued from their flooded homes. president obama joined governor chris christie on a tour of the new jersey shore, where sandy made landfall monday evening. >> we are not going to tolerate red tape. we are not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule, essentially, on my team. you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes, whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> pelley: three days ago, this was a neighborhood of families. this evening, folks are returning to find all of their possessions in ashes. and a little while ago, we saw a man put everything he had in one baby stroller and push it away. breezy point is a community on the rockaway peninsula east of manhattan, and it is the bluest of blue-collar neighborhoods. many of the residents here are new york city firefighters or cops. let us show you what breezy point looked like before. rows of houses just a block or two from the beach. this is what the neighborhood looks like now. governor andrew cuomo walked the ground today and h
